York Gym in the Running for National Award


6:23am 6th December 2012

City of York Council's award-winning leisure centre Energise has been shortlisted for the second year running for the national ‘best performer’ award for work being carried out in Sports and Leisure Facility Management.

Five other leisure centres in the UK have been nominated.

Councillor Sonja Crisp, City of York Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism said: "The award recognises high standards in a number of different criteria including quality of facilities, staff and efficiency.  It builds on the current success of Energise, where the fitness suite has recently been extended to meet increasing customer demand and now accommodates 95 users whereas previously it was 56.

“For Energise to be placed in the shortlist of top five of the UK’s best performing leisure centres is a tribute to the hard work and professionalism of all the staff and I wish them every success with the award as well as helping meet council priorities of improving residents’ health and wellbeing.”        

The final results will be announced at the National Association of Public Service Excellence (APSE) 2012 Performance Network Awards annual ceremony on Thursday 6 December, which takes place in Blackpool each year.
